Tobacco Industry Campaign
Companies: Altria Group (formerly Philip Morris)
Corporate Accountability International is campaigning for the implementation and enforcement of the global tobacco treaty. The Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) protects global health policy from corporate or industry interference. The global tobacco treaty bans tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship. According to CAI, "Philip Morris/Altria--which has tremendous influence over US health policy--claims to support the treaty, but opposes its central provisions. As it is implemented, the treaty will prevent the corporation from addicting new customers with aggressive promotional tactics like the Marlboro Man." Click on the URL to take action now.
